Pros: Love It! Was really easy to break in!
by Coach Greg - Jul 16, 2012
Pros: durable, great looking and the best part is...an awesome "POP" when the ball hits the pocket just right..sounds like a 22 going off, nice intimidation
Cons: not available in team colors
by Lefty - Oct 26, 2012
Pros: Good feel and quality. Was large enough to fit my 14 yr. old daughter's large hand. Not super soft, but I think it will last longer than the really soft gloves. Our last glove was a Glove Smith that lasted about 5 years of very hard use 9 months out of each year. It was super stiff and hard when I got it. She wanted something different this time and as a left handed catcher was limited on choices. I think this was a good choice.
Cons: LIttle longer break in time.

Play in an over 65 league. 5'6,140lbs. Old but we hustle. Would this mit meet my needs? It's a slowpitch league.
Asked by Bill on Sep 28, 2012
The Mizuno MVP Prime Series: GXS53 Fastpitch Catcher's Mitt is a female fastpitch softball glove designed to fit the smaller hand of a female player. Most men will find this glove too tight, but if you have below average size hands for a male, then this mitt would be a good option for you.

she has a Gxs53 presently that is a bit worn. She loves it, works well. Plays u 16. Since we are going to purchase a new one would the Gxs31 be an up grade for her or should we stick with what we have??
Asked by allie cat on Sep 24, 2012
If you want a mitt that is a little more durable, the Mizuno Classic Fastpitch Series: GXS31 would be recommended as it's made with a higher quality, more durable leather. So, yes, the GXS31 would be an upgrade over the GXS53.

my dd is a smaller 12 year old girl is this glove to big for her?
Asked by jim on Aug 26, 2012
A 34" mitt like the Mizuno MVP Prime Series: GXS53 is more common among high school and college level players. A 33" model is better suited for a 12-13 year old.

My daughter catchers for 12u fastpitch softball team and uses her regular glove now. She is wanting to start using a catchers glove. would this be the right fit for her?
Asked by tdog20 on Apr 23, 2012
A 34 inch mitt like the GXS53 is more common among advanced High School players and players at the collegiate level. A player around 12 years old will be better suited with a mitt between 32 and 33 inches.

LOOKING FOR A GOOD CATCHERS GLOVE FOR MY 9YR OLD DAUGHTER SHE PLAYS 10U SOFTBALL DIVISION- SHE IS SMALL AND I NEED TO KNOW WOULD THIS GLOVE SUITE HER SMALL HAND??? HOW DOES THIS GLOVE DIFFER IN SIZE COMPARED TO A REG GLOVE?
Asked by CAROLINA on Apr 19, 2012
At 34 inches, this mitt would be way too big for a 9 year old. This size is more common among High School and College age players. For a 9 year old, a mitt between 31 or 32 inches (max) would be a better option.

I tried on this glove at 34" and i was barely able to squeeze my hand in. (I'm a 40 yr old Dad looking for something with more padding to catch my 10 yr old fast pitch softball). is there much a difference moving up to the 34.5"?
Asked by jzappola on Jun 13, 2011
Fastpitch gloves are designed to fit the smaller hand of a female and most adult males with average size hands or larger will probably find them a bit uncomfortable. Most males who catch players in female fastpitch softball use a regular baseball fielders glove (around 13" or a baseball firstbase mitt around 13" as well.

Love to get suggestions on breaking in this mizuno glove well - aside from 'using' it.we have glove oil, etc. Having difficulty breaking this glove in - despite use, oil and working on it, it still remains very stiff

I just bought this glove and I am trying to break it in, I used Nokona conditioning oil to break it in but it is a very thick substance. I was wondering how I can get it off my glove without causing damage. Is hot water and soap okay to use?
Asked by Dilly Bear on Apr 29, 2011
Once a glove has been treated and it's sat for a considerable amount of time and soaked into the leather, there is really no way to remove it. I definitely wouldn't recommend soaking a glove in water and soap, but you can wipe the glove down with a cloth that has been dampened with water and soap. This may help to remove any excess oil that has built up on the exterior of the glove.

I am a high school catcher and my current mitt is too warn out to be of any use anymore, i have an average sized had but a small wrist. Will this glove be to large for me? My pitcher has about a 65 mph fastball, will it be padded enough also?
Asked by Bethany on Apr 17, 2011
Well, the average size catcher's mitt for a high school fastpitch softball player is between 33 and 34 inches. At 34.5 inches, this is one of the larger fastpitch mitts available but it is designed to fit a smaller hand of a female fastpitch player and I think it will fit your hand just fine. It also has an adjustable wrist strap and features above average padding.

Can you tell me the difference between prime series GXS53 and GXS31. My daughter is a catcher High School catcher. Also How do you pick the size of the mitt?
Asked by Terri on Mar 18, 2011
Both are great gloves, but the GXS31 is made from a slighly higher quality leather. Sizing really comes down to personal preference, and there's really no way to measure the player to determine the correct size glove. Most High School fastpitch catcher's will use a mitt between 33 and 34.5 inches.

how easy to break in and how long should it last, should you wear a batting glove with it?
Asked by Gus on Feb 27, 2011
This is a pretty high-quality glove but it shouldn't take longer than a few sessions of catch before it's ready. It has the capabilities to last longer than two seasons, but durability will vary. Wearing a batting glove is completely based on your personal preference.

My daughter is 11 and has one year of catching under her belt. What circumference of mitt is best for this age?
Asked by Scott on Feb 11, 2011
For your daughter's age group, a 32 to 33 inch fastpitch catcher's mitt is recommended. A lot of it comes down to personal preference, but I wouldn't go any larger than a 33 or 33.5 inch mitt.
· Feb 14, 2011
I am an adult that needs a catchers glove so I can catch for my daughter who uses a 12in softball. What size glove should I get?
Asked by Vicky on Dec 22, 2010
Hi Vicky. This would actually be an excellent option for you. If you're a parent or coach and not accustomed to catching fastpitch softball, I'd go with a larger size mitt like this one.
